Do you know Jesus?

I desire to tell the whole world about the Lord Jesus Christ. I was so lost and empty before He came into my life. I have recently joined Twitter and I have been able to direct many people to come visit my site. If just one person comes to know the Lord as their Saviour, It will be worth it all.
Do you know for sure where you will spend eternity?
Do you have something missing in your life?
Do you feel like you go from one thing to another trying to fill the emptiness in your life?
Do you feel that the things you are chasing in this world *riches* will bring you happiness?
Do you realize you are a sinner?
Do you have an interest in what truth really is?
Do you desire to be truly happy and no matter what you try to do to be happy, you always come up short?

God has allowed you to feel this emptiness, so that you would realize that you need something to fill that void. It is within a man to worship a higher power, why do you think that in the deepest jungles they have their rituals? They serve the moon gods, the sun gods, and whatever other gods that they might come up with.
Romans 1:23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

God put it within a man to know that there is some higher power
Romans 1:19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
We are all without excuse, because God has put all things into place to reveal himself. We just refuse to believe.

May 7th 1992 For the first time in my life, I realized according to the scriptures that I was eternally lost without Christ and that I needed a Saviour.
Romans 10:3
FOR THEY BEING ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

I was constantly trying to fulfil my own righteouness, trying to gain God's favour. I had to come to repentance and realize it was nothing I could do to gain his favour. He sent his son to die for me, because I was a sinner.
Romans 3:23
FOR ALL HAVE sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Exodus 20:4
THOU SHALT NOT make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth:
Exodus 20:5
THOU SHALT NOT bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me;
Exodus 20:7
THOU SHALT NOT take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Exodus 20:10
But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of the LORD thy God: [in it] THOU SHALT NOT do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that [is] within thy gates:
Exodus 20:13
Exodus 20:14
THOU SHALT NOT commit adultery.
Exodus 20:15
Exodus 20:16
THOU SHALT NOT bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Exodus 20:17
THOU SHALT NOT covet thy neighbour's house, THOU SHALT NOT covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that [is] thy neighbour's.

Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen ANYTHING? Have you ever coveted your neighbors things? ALL of the above are God's laws, and their are over 600 more.
Have you ever Killed? Or do you hate anyone?
The Bible says
1 John 3:15
Whosoever HATEth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

We do not want to believe we are sinners, We have been taught that we are good people, we have been taught that if you are a good person, It will all work out in the end if your good works out weigh your bad

NOT TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are over 600 laws written in the Old Testiment, but if we try to be good enough to obey every law and yet break one law, we stand guilty before God of them all.
James 2:10
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one [point], he is GUILTY of all.

The biggest argument I hear today is that the Bible is not real, just a book of fairy tales. If that is what I tell myself, than I don't feel the need to do anything that about it.

If the truth is that I have cancer, but I choose to tell myself that it is not real, I have killed myself.

Why don't we stop and examine our belief system? Have we taken someone else's belief system on? Have we really examined for ourselves? Have you really spent time reading the Bible *King James Bible* What if everything you have been taught is a lie, what if you really do have a cancer that in the end will be your destruction? A cancer of unbelief.

I have heard others say that religion is a crutch, YOU ARE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!
I realized that within my own abilities, I was coming up short. I needed a Saviour. I could not keep the laws, I could not save myself. If I am in need of a crutch in order to walk, wouldnt it just make sense to admit I needed that crutch? There are a lot of crippled people walking around today needing that crutch, but refusing through Pride to admit their need.
Psalms 10:4
The wicked, through the PRIDE of his countenance, will not seek [after God]: God [is] not in all his thoughts.
1 John 2:16
For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the PRIDE of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Proverbs 21:4
An high look, and a PROUD heart, [and] the plowing of the wicked, [is] sin.
James 4:6
But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the PROUD, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Please humble yourself and admit your need for a Saviour.
Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost.
Luke 19:10
For the Son of man is come to seek and to SAVE THAT WHICH was lost.

When you realize that you are lost, that is when the Lord can save you.

Believe the Gospel, Jesus was born of a virgin, came and lived on this earth for 33 1/2 years, was crucified, was buried and rose again the third day and is in heaven seated at the right hand of the Father.

9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

If you believe the Gospel and will repent of your sins, call upon Jesus Christ. He will save you and give you an eternal home in Heaven.

Please feel free to leave your comments.
If you have prayed and asked the Lord to save you Please leave me a message and we will rejoice together.
God Bless.

God bless you for this post. If it is alright with you, I'd like to post a link to this on my other, personal blog. You have given me a lot of peace today, knowing that I will see my Lord someday because He has chosen me as His child.

Ms. Sherri,
I would be honored for you to use this post. Please pass it on, please tell others about Our Saviour.
I pray that others would be able to come to know the peace that I have in my life from knowing the Lord.
God Bless and publish on.
Deuteronomy 32:3
Because I will PUBLISH the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
Psalms 68:11
The Lord gave the word: great [was] the company of those that PUBLISHed [it].
